Let’s be real about gerrymandering: both parties use it, it’s the proper political process, and its detractors are mostly hypocrites.
The Constitution demands we solve it at the ballot box, or in our state and federal legislatures. We should stop expecting the Supreme Court to step up.
Redistricting for the ‘efficiency gap’ further abandons the idea that voters should have a real choice, and that their representative is out to represent them, not their political party.
What is more in accord with the rule of law: four justices usurping the power of a co-equal branch of government, or a legislature doing exactly what the state constitution allows?
The court’s decision, which incredibly did not cite case law or a constitutional provision, was a show of legislative force.
Perhaps Thomas Brunell is unfit to run the U.S. Census Bureau. But his thesis on competitive elections is perfectly reasonable.
Gerrymandering is a self-defeating enterprise, in which the rigged system always unrigs itself.
The biggest current winners of a practice nearly as old as the republic are black and Hispanic members of Congress. Do Democrats want to reduce their numbers?
A look at history will show how the Supreme Court’s liberal justices abandoned their principles in pursuit of a purely political win for Democrats.
An orange, moderate Republican before that was cool, Charlie Crist is now looking to lose his second election as a Democrat.
Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan needs to read two more sentences when considering whether Texas can draw voting districts by population or voter totals.
